Radiation situation in Europe

The EURDEP platform is operated by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission. EURDEP (EUropean Radiological Data Exchange Platform) is the European information exchange system for radioactivity measurements. A total of 38 European countries provide radiation monitoring data to the system, and the results are based on data from approximately 5,000 measurement stations.

The Advanced Map shows the average and maximum dose rates over the previous 35 days.  This view offers more options for filtering and analyzing data. Due to the large amount of data shown, this map is not suitable for phone browsers. Learn more about EURDEP data sources. 

The dose rate unit of the European radiation situation map is nanosieverts per hour (nSv/h), which is a thousand times higher than the unit used in STUK's Radiation today application, where the unit is microsieverts per hour (µSv/h). In Finland, background radiation normally varies from 0.05 to 0.30 microsieverts per hour, or 50–300 nanosieverts per hour.
